About the Author

Dr. Bob Rotella is the bestselling author of a dozen books, including Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect, The Unstoppable Golfer, and How Champions Think. He was the director of sport psychology for twenty years at the University of Virginia, where his reputation grew as the expert champions talked to him about the mental aspects of their game. Rotella was a consultant multiple times to the United States Ryder Cup Team. His golf client list includes Hall of Famers Pat Bradley, Tom Kite, Davis Love III, and Nick Price, as well as many of today’s stars, such as Justin Thomas, Darren Clarke, Jim Furyk, Padraig Harrington, Brad Faxon, and Rory McIlroy. A long-time consultant to Golf Digest, he lives in Virginia with his wife, Darlene.


Director of sports psychology at the University of Virginia, Rotella (Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect) writing with freelancer Cullen, offers advice not unlike that preached by Harvey Penick, which is to visualize each shot before it is made. But he has other words of wisdom as well: have an overall game plan; practice enough so that in tourney play it is almost automatic; learn when to be patient and when to be aggressive; and, above all, have fun. Rotella illustrates his lessons with chapters based on 18 golfers he has worked or talked with, some famous like Byron Nelson, Pat Bradley, Davis Love III and Tom Kite, but others less well known, like a New Jersey accountant who finally broke 80, a Virginian who won that state's Senior Amateur tournament and his own father, whom he introduced to the game at age 63. He also has observations on controlling anger, bouncing back from defeat, coping with near-disabling illness and learning confidence. Links addicts at any level can learn from Rotella's recommendations. (May)
